Amar'e Stoudemire: 'Progress' Being Made In NBA Lockouts

Amar'e Stoudemire was one of a number of All-Stars who attended NBA lockout talks on Tuesday in New York City. The Knicks big man left just after 4 p.m. ET, about three hours into the negotiating session, and briefly talked to reporters, relaying that progress was being made but that he wasn't sure there was enough momentum to end the stoppage soon and prevent the delay of the season.

From Ken Berger:

Amar'e Stoudemire leaves, but meetings still ongoing: "So far, we're making progress, which is great."... On season starting on time: "I still have a neutral feeling. We're not sure."

On Monday, NBA commissioner David Stern said that if the Tuesday session was "very short," it would be a bad sign for negotiations. At three hours plus, it's safe to say that by that standard the league has avoided a bad outcome on the surface. Now we wait to see what actually happened -- and is still to happen -- inside the room.
